The holiday windows at the flagship Neiman Marcus store have made its seasonal debut, and this year's spectacle is bringing festive fun for everyone to enjoy. Head to Downtown Dallas' most iconic store for a dazzling display of fashion, art and décor.


A Little History

Neiman Marcus first opened its doors in 1907 in Downtown Dallas, and 30 years later became a must-see magical holiday experience with the 1937 introduction of the first Stanley Marcus Holiday Tree. To this day, the original tree is still part of the annual display at the Palladium window on Ervay Street, along with several unique and rare style pieces incorporated into each years' theme. The 2019 edition follows a circus theme, showcasing various extravagant fashions and innovative designs, making a visit to the Neiman Marcus holiday windows a must-do to complete your holiday adventure in Dallas.

The Detailed Process

Through months of planning, the iconic display is meticulously designed and carefully constructed by the Neiman Marcus team. The team chooses the theme, which is then integrated into the clothes, props and other trinkets included in each window display. The windows go on display in November and stay through early January, so make sure to stop by for a photo!

Don't miss the Holiday Events

Along with the holiday window displays, Neiman Marcus also has several events filled with fun for the whole family. Take the kids to Dinner with Santa on Dec. 12 or 19 at The Zodiac Room. With special appearances by Santa and his elves, energetic performances, balloon artists and more, Dinner with Santa is perfect for a little holiday magic for your little ones.

Also, at The Zodiac Room is the highly praised annual Neiman Marcus Holiday Buffet. Indulge in a carefully crafted menu of all your favorite holiday dishes, like Eggnog, glazed ham, mac & cheese and more, as well as enjoy lively entertainment. The buffet is open Monday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m., now through Jan. 4. Reservations are required.
